Pointe Claire, Quebec

 
The Beaconsfield Golf Club founded in 1904, located in scenic Pointe-Claire, Quebec, 35km west of Montreal, holds the reputation as being one of the finest competitive golf courses found in Canada. The century-old club has played host to many national and international championships since its founding in 1904. Set against the impressive backdrop of a former limestone quarry, the well-manicured fairways lined with stately maples provide a tranquil setting for this surprisingly challenging course that demands both stamina and accuracy. The 18th hole, framed by the impressive, sprawling clubhouse is regarded as one of the most exciting and picturesque finishing holes in Canada. According to Barclay 2000, Stanley Thompson undertook an extensive renovation of the course in 1941, so vast in scope that the course could have been considered 'new.'
